To what lengths would you go to protect your son and to keep him with you? Sonora will do almost anything. She leaves home and goes to a wild and dangerous part of the country where she faces comancheros and the man who wants to take her son away. During this journey, she meets Jonathan, the man of her dreams. Is she willing to give up a chance at a life with him in order to keep Timmy with her? After an attack by the comancheros, Timmy is taken and Sonora is left for dead. Captain Jonathan Parker finds the young woman and takes her back to Fort Benton to recover. Jonathan is a devout Christian and has been able to maintain his Christian principles and be an example for his men. He has prayed for God to send him a wife and he is drawn to this desperate young woman. But is she a woman of God? It doesn't appear so. Will he be able to suppress is feelings or will God change the young woman's heart? Will Sonora get her son back and will she be able to keep him? Can she ever entrust her life and the life of her son to God?
Jonathan looked directly into her cold, brown eyes as he answered. “Sonora, right now I don't know what else to do. Like I said, if anybody can find a lead on who those men are that rode out of the camp with the little boy, Tivy will.” Jonathan reached across the table and laid his hand on Sonora's. “All I can say is the rest of us need to pray. God is the only one that knows where your son is. We can pray for protection for your son and that God will lead Tivy to him.”
Sonora snatched her hand back and got up from the table. “Seems like that's doing nothing. I've been praying, and so far, I'm no closer to getting Timmy back.” Sonora looked Jonathan in the eyes. “Praying doesn't seem to have accomplished anything. God should have protected him and not let him get kidnapped in the first place.”
Tobias came to stand beside his niece. He put his arm around her shoulder. “Girl, this is no time to go talkin' against God and prayer. You don't know what God has protected that boy from because someone has been prayin'. At least we know he's still alive because I believe the little boy they saw was Timmy. If we hadn't been prayin', who's to say those bandits wouldn't have killed him.”
Sonora said nothing more. She knew her uncle was right but right now she was angry. She was angry with herself for not protecting Timmy. She was angry with Daniel Forrester for pursuing her and the child, causing them to have to leave the comfort of her father's home. She was angry with Jonathan and the whole stinking army for not finding her son and bringing him back to her. She was angry at the comancheros for taking Timmy away from her, and yes, she was angry with God for allowing all of this to happen in the first place.
